Awesome Trip to Egypt

Just returned today from a 16-day trip to Egypt. Wat a wonderful and amazing country. We booked our trip with STI-Travel and couldn't ask for a more perfect trip. Our guides and drivers were wonderful.

We started out in Cario and stayed at the Grand Hyatt. Great hotel right on the Nile. Service was great. The Egyptian people are great. Couldn't do enough for us. We saw the Egyptian Museum, Old Cario, went to Alexandria for the day, pyramids, sound and light show, shopped, etc.

Abu Simbel is amazing. Don't miss it. It was well worth waking up at 2:15am to catch a 4:30am flight to see it. What an engineering marvel.

We spent the next 3 night on the Nile. Left from Aswan and and went to Luxor. Did the hot air balloon ride in Luxor. I would do it again. Great way to get an ariel view of Valley of the Kings.

From Luxor we went to Sharm El Sheirk for 4 nights. Great way to relax out of the city for a few days. We stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel. Great room with a sea view. We rented quads and went out into the desert for a sunset ride. We are from California and ride in Glamis. Different riding quad with camels near by. Also, went to St. Katherines Monestary.

As soon as I get my pictures up on WebShots I will post the link.
